About AOC

AOC is an optical fiber cable equipped with a high-performance photoelectric conversion engine *5, the bending strength had greatly improved by adopting EverPro's BendRobust™ Fiber.

At EverPro, we consistently carry out all the processes from development, manufacturing and shipment of AOC mounted with ICs and modules.

Currently, copper metal cables of USB and HDMI I/F are adopted for various products such as monitor, 4K/8K compatible TV, transmitter/receiver, VR, advanced medical equipment, signage, projector, factory automation, and Machine Vision.

In the future, as the resolution of image and video data increases, the amount of transmission data increases, and cables that support high-speed data transmission and reception becomes necessary for these applications. A great demand is expected for AOC as a solution that can solve three problems such as (1) long distance, (2) noise tolerance, and (3) increasing bit rate and frame rate.


Fujitsu Electronics will provide all products including EverPro’s AOC for not only customers in Japan but customers around the world by using our own overseas offices.
